My wife and I have recently returned from our latest trip to Mexico. We went down with some friends and had a great time together. My basic camera kit came along for the trip as well.
In order to try and pack somewhat light, I brought along the X-Pro2, Rokinon 12mm, Fuji 18-55mm, 23mm f/2 and 35mm f/1.4. While this may seem like a lot, the kit is very compact and rather lightweight all together. The kit, along with a Surface Pro 4, accessories, Velbon Ultra Maxi tripod and other stuff all fit into my backpack as my carry on personal item on the plane. This kit let me shoot essentially everything I needed. Long exposures on the beach at night were no issue and the 18-55mm served well during the day on the beach to prevent changing lenses most often.
My daughter and I had the day off today so we went out for a hike together. She wanted to bring a camera so I let her use my backup with a small prime lens. We loved being out together and exploring in the woods.
The typical winter cold has subsided for a few days and the sun was out instead of the usual gloom of February. My daughter and I went on a short walk through a family member’s field. We stomped around and explored, forgetting that most likely in a few days, the cold would creep back in again.
